What is Jjagechee? 

There are several kinds of instant Jajangmyeon in Korea.

what is Jajangmyeon then?

Jajangmyeon (자장면) or jjajangmyeon (짜장면) is a Chinese-style Korean noodle that topped with a thick sauce made of chunjang( kind of saouce), diced pork, and vegetables.

In summary, JJA-GYE-CHEE is a dish of instant jajangmyeon with egg and cheese.

The name JJA-GYE-CHEE(짜-계-치) is named after the Korean initials of the ingredients of ‘짜장면(jajangmyeon) + 계란(gyeran)egg + 치즈cheese’. Thanks to eggs and cheese, instant ramen can have a slightly more savory and natural taste. That is why it is popular among many young people.

10. place 1-2 fried eggs on top of Cheese. I recommend to cook eggs Sunny-side Up. This is because the yolk serves as a sauce.
